with just two days to go before the start of football championship euro 2016, the very first teams have made their way to france. also coming up this hour, the race to train security guards ahead of the start of the european football championships, with 5000 jobs created in the industry for the tournament. back, thischristo is time giving italians a chance to see what it is like to actually walk on water. more on that on the way. first, our top stories live from paris. hillary clinton is now one step closer to making history as the first female nominee for president of the united states. speaking after his new jersey primary victory last night,
5:32 am
clinton still went ahead and declared herself the democratic nominee. she already has enough delegates to clinch the nomination, but given that some of those herrdelegates behind her -- rival bernie sanders is not giving up. clinton also took to twitter to dedicate the win to every little girl who dreams big and she wrote, "yes, you can be anything you want, even president." let's bring in our washington correspondent, gallagher fenwick. it has been a really big night for hillary clinton. indeed, with a couple of very important victories, notably the one in new jersey. that was an easy one for her. but another important one being attribute it to her by u.s. media and california, the delegate rich states for her, she had been campaigning out there very hard precisely to avoid the sort of catastrophe scenario as a defeat against senator sanders, who has been
5:33 am
coming dangerously close to her in the most recent polls. in the end, the campaign money and the many appearances by the former secretary of state and gets,rcuits -- her server bill clinton -- her surrogates, bill clinton and chelsea clinton -- according to the associated press, she had already clinched the nomination through the number of delegates and superdelegates before. but symbolically, a very important moment for her. she also had other victories in some of the other states that were voting, and a couple of defeats. our reminder of how much of a bruising experience this primary campaign has been for the former secretary of state, who now basically through the speech she gave, and her attitude has clearly pivoted in general election mode, and is ready for battle against her presumptive
5:34 am
rival, donald trump. genie: what about bernie sanders in all of this? he is going to washington tomorrow to meet with president obama, at sanders' request. any idea what that might be about? gallagher: obviously the pressure is going to be huge for the senator from vermont to stop this incessant battle and clear the path for hillary. most importantly, to help to unify a deeply divided party. the statement that was issued very late last night mentioned the fact that the meeting is being held at senator sanders' request and simply says that the president looks forward to continuing a conversation with him about the issues that are at stake and about how to keep inspiring millions of voters as senator sanders has done. the desire of the democratic party and of the president himself is to bring those
5:35 am
millions of voters on board in order to ensure the victory in the general election in november. following that conversation, we might have that moment that hillary clinton and many others in the democratic party have been waiting for, and that is president barack obama official making official who he supports in the campaign, and that will of course be hillary. genie: thank you for that. our chief foreign editor, robert parsons, has been following the tuesday very closely. it looks like we are heading to a clinton-trump face-off in november. rob: hillary clinton has a 13-point lead in california. hopee sanders' lingering that he might get sufficient numbers of pledged delegates to win at the convention disappears now.
5:36 am
mathematically it is time to say that it is impossible. it does not mean that he will not go on to compete in washington, d.c., but his chances have completely died out. hillary clinton, as we just -- it is in a norm aslant important day. asleep --n in norm enormously important day. i think would bernie sanders is hoping is that he would have the momentum coming out of the primary. it has happened the other way around. hillary clinton is the one with the momentum. she has triumphed big in california and new jersey. genie: the focus is very much going to be on the democrats hitting together, fighting donald trump. what might their secret be? rob: the line of attack is already becoming clear, from what hillary clinton has been saying.
5:37 am
she is going straight for the jugular, saying this man is not suitable for office -- temporarily unfit is the words she used. she said donald trump has ideas are not just different, that she said donald trump's ideas are not just different, they are just a series of bizarre rants, personal views, and outright lies. she is quite clearly going to stress that this is a man you cannot trust. you cannot put this man of the white house. you cannot allow this man to have his finger on the nuclear button. beyond that, the democratic party has to unite. this is going to be the issue. bernie sanders has made his case for his ideas in the party. he will be pursuing that, demanding at the convention and beyond that they find a central place in the campaign forward. but in addition to that, hillary clinton, although she has triumphed over bernie sanders,
5:38 am
bernie sanders says he will endorse her if she gets the nomination. the problem for her is, can she win over the supporters of bernie sanders. that is going to be the challenge for her in the month ahead. thanks so much for that, rob. another vote for you now, and there is just two weeks to go for the brits to vote whether to stay in and out -- in or out of the european union. david cameron debated last night on tv. claire williams has more. nigel: nigel for rise -- political spent his career trying to get britain out of the eu. to make this country safer we need to get back british passports so that we can check anybody else coming into this country.
